The application will be reviewed, and if you are successful at this stage, you will be contacted to arrange an interview. Prior to the interview, we will require you to provide your training records from your current force.
If successful at interview, you’ll be required to pass medical and fitness tests, as well as providing a current force reference. You’ll also have to pass our security vetting process. You can find more detail on this in our applicant help section, and it’s essential that you read this.
You will also be required to complete a medical questionnaire and an eyesight form, for which your GP and optician may charge. We are unfortunately unable to reimburse these costs. We will also send you an Occupational Health consent form, which enables us to approach your current force for a copy of your Occupational Health medical records.
If you pass all these checks, you will be contacted with our next available intake date. You’ll then receive a final offer letter, containing your posting details, along with instructions regarding your first week.
Please do not serve your notice to your current force until you have received your final offer letter in writing.
If you have any questions regarding any stage of the process, please contact iQuery@bch.police.uk.
